Subject: Charlie Chaplin anyone?
Some of the acting by Harry Langdon reminds on Charlie Chaplin, but here as a rather charming and nice person; when you take a look at some of CC's short films, then you will see some "aggressive" acting by him. HL is much calmer and less offensive.

Well ... the ending is odd, to say the least and the plot is first good and bad towards the end. The first scene has its charm but it is only getting downhill from there.

Subject: Harry Langdon Good in this Silent Screen Short
Just under three minutes - action - a little romance - and a story that reaches a conclusion. With subtitles and some background music in this film short from the silent era of movie making. Very good with Harry Hangdon in the lead role.
